He appeared to suffer the injury when he landed hard on his wrist at the end of a drive to the basket. Replays showed he broke his fall with is right hand and, after doing so, Hayward sat on the floor in obvious pain.
“We’ll know more tomorrow,” Hornets coach James Borrego said after the game. “Obviously, we’re all concerned, but I don’t have an official update right now.”
